Before the Big Storm


Recently, here in the UK, we were warned of an approaching storm, the worst for more than a decade, with fierce winds and torrential rain. We were told to ‘batten down the hatches’ and expect the worst. St Jude’s storm hit southern England on the night of Sunday 27 October into the early hours of Monday 28 October 2013. Winds of 99 mph were recorded, hundreds of trees were blown down blocking roads and railways, flights were cancelled, homes lost their power and four people sadly lost their lives.

Prior to the storm, on the Sunday afternoon, we decided to go for a short walk along Sandbanks beach. The wind was already building up, as can be seen from this short video I shot on my iPhone (needless to say, I didn’t get my camera out with all that sand blowing around!).

I've had a passion for photography for as long as I can remember and have been running my own photographic business for many years. This also carries over into my personal interests: I love the great outdoors and enjoy nothing better than to be outside taking photos and combining this with my hobbies of cycle touring, camping, backpacking, canoeing and just being out in the wilds, or as the Australians say "beyond the black stump" farther into the outback than the city lights.
